Established in 1973 under the Societies Act XXI, 1860, The Indian Society for Parasitology (ISP) has the major objectives of bringing parasitologists of different disciplines under one umbrella to advance knowledge in this vital area concerning human and animal health. Over the years, the Society has carved a niche for itself by providing a common platform to research scientists, clinicians, field biologists, academicians and all others involved in parasitology or tropical medicine to share and exchange their knowledge and observations. The Society is affiliated with the World Federation of Parasitologists and has over 600 life members at present. A duly elected Executive Committee governs the affairs of the ISP according to its Bye Laws and Constitution.

Annual conferences, sponsored by national and international agencies, are organized by the ISP with a view to take stock of the current developments in parasitology and evolve strategies for the control and containment of parasitic diseases. These meetings include key note addresses, award lectures, invited/guest lectures, and contributed papers. Symposia and brain storming sessions on important areas of parasitology form an integral part of such conferences.
